Ok, entertain me that I’m telling the truth: I did send in a phone that was in mint condition.
So all in all, Verizon got me to buy a new phone. And they got my iphone 7+ for free which is probably worth something. My son could have used it as a video player…
Why are we on Verizon again?
Unfortunately you are one of thousands that VERIZON has stolen from. Don't kid yourself you will never get any resolution. This is a SCAM and Verizon knows they are doing this. Thus far they count on us all going away and forgetting about it.
They will reach out to you and act like they are concerned but all they will do is stall and lie. Never a refund never a return phone. NOTHING!
Many have been jerked around before you.
call your local news team to investigate... call the BBB a report this. Eventually this scam will get turned out!

I have a very similar problem with Verizon's trade in status. Its been 7 weeks since UPS tracking shows Verizon received my trade-in phone. I've spent nearly 2 hours talking to Customer Service (Tom and Andrew) and it is now another 4 weeks for them to clear their back log of tickets for appraising devices.
I would change from Verizon, but have to wait because they have my perfectly good trade in phone and I'm waiting to see if I get my trade in credit.
Did you ever get a resolution from Verizon? I am about to be in the same boat. Did a trade in, valued at $700. Shipped the phone using Verizon’s prepaid UPS shipping label. UPS picked it up. I happen to check the tracking the next day and now it says UPS damaged it. I called Verizon and they are requesting that UPS call me in 3 to 5 business days for next steps. I guarantee next steps is me filing a claim on the package with UPS and maybe getting $100. I’m sure Verizon doesn’t buy any extra insurance on their return labels.
